We’ve just lived through two of the saddest, most disheartening weeks in recent memory. And we’re on the eve of a political spectacle that promises to take us to new depths.
It's a struggle knowing how to respond to the chaos around us. My best idea at the moment is to fight off the feelings of hopelessness with an offer of helpfulness: What can I do now or in the weeks ahead to help you?
I’m not talking about paid work (though that’s always welcome); I’m talking about being of service to you in any way I can. For example, I could:
- provide feedback on something you’ve written
- support a cause that’s close to your heart
- listen to you complain about your boss/spouse/kid/coworker/neighbor/etc.
- brainstorm about a business or personal challenge
As long as it doesn't involve moving heavy furniture, I'm open to your requests.
I can’t end racism or terrorism or gun violence, but I can try to bring an open heart and a helpful hand to the people around me. I hope you’ll take me up on the offer!
